No ORANGE for MY Momma!!

My mother is all about PINK!  She has a pink kitchen, a pink bathroom, pink flowers outside, pink, pink, and more pink!  She hates orange!  So, I had to make her a special Halloween card.  She doesn't have internet so she can't peek at this. But I assure you that when she opens this envelope in Oct she'll burst out laughing!  And it will have a place of honor.

Owl with new Scallop Die from the upcoming mini

My daughter needed a second thank you card this week so I grabbed what was in front of me and came up with an owl card.  The smaller white die is part of the new scallop square die coming in the Sept mini.

Longfellow with new Trimtastic Trims available Sept.

I love it when my daughter calls and asks for a special card for me to create.  In this case a friend helped out by giving their new dachsund puppy a dog kennel.  So, I went to work and made a thank you from Willow, the puppy.  Crystal effects is on the heart and handmade brads.  Longellow is part of a level one hostess set.  Both chococlate chip strips are part of the new XL die called Trimtastic which is exclusive to SU.  I think the top part is a scrap but hey, it worked!

Owl with new sneak peaks!

  1. Bigz Scallop Squares Duo
  2. Bix XL Die Tasteful Trim 
  3. Glimmer brad
I love the cute owl punch and he is so fun to dress to match your cards.  The designer paper is from the brights designer paper pack.  The tasteful trim bigz die is going to be used often.  It can make wide ric-rac, zig-zag designs and is long so I can use it with scrapbooking too.  It make 4 trims and could be my new favorite bigshot toy.

Batty for you with new sneak peak Glimmer Brad

Pear Pizzaz with Razzleberry is used on this Batty for You card.  The glimmer brads will be available in the next mini.  I used the 1 3/8 inch circle punch, top note die, vintage wallpaper embossing folder and it all went together quickly.  Easy peasy!  That is my kind of card.

Medallion Inspiration RAK

My picture doesn't do justice to this card.  The medallion background stamp is embossed on top of a french script background stamp. Vintage looking cards are all the rage right now and this fits the bill perfectly. RaeDeen let me borrow it so that I can case it.   I love the colors, the texture and I don't know how it could be any better.  Thanks for sharing!

Just Believe

I broke out the new Stampin' UP! set Just Believe last night to make a birthday card for a friend. This is one of those versatile go-to sets.  I got to give her the card tonight and then see her newly organized stamping space.  I love it!  This card  uses regal rose, daffodil delight and the new pear pizazz.  The ribbon is the new narrow striped stampin up ribbon.  And the tiny butterflies are from my very favorite embosslit.  I cased this card with permission from Patty known as LaLatty on splitcoast.  Thanks, Patty!  Just a flip of the card and a little different size, circles instead of squares but you get the picture!  I love Patty's ribbons tied on her border.

RAK from a stampin friend

I received a RAK (random act of kindness) from a stampin friend a couple of weeks ago. The colors she used just pop off the page. I love color and this card inspires me.
Thanks, RaeDeen!

Andrew sledding

I'm off on a road trip with my DH so I'll post an old page I designed with MDS by Stampin' UP!  I just got to spend some time with one of my nephews who I greatly enjoy. That made me remember this page I had stored that features him.  If you are hot maybe this will cool you off!

MDS Stampin' UP! digital scrapbook page

If you are interested in digital scrapbooking or just creating fun pics Stampin' UP! has an incredibly easy program to use.  If I can use it anyone can!  I'm certainly not tech savvy and this was my first project.  We took Grandma to Wicked last year to celebrate her birthday and this was our fun Wicked picture.
